The initiative’s agreement has been signed by STC Group CEO, Dr. Khaled Biyari and by Brightline Executive Director Ricardo Vargas.

Launched early in 2017 by the Project Management Institute (PMI), the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Agile Alliance, the Brightline Initiative is a non-commercial coalition dedicated to helping executives bridge the expensive and unproductive gap between strategy design and delivery.

“STC has a profound expertise and a renowned success in building and executing strategies. We are looking forward to joining a coalition that brings together leading organizations and academics worldwide to address the critical business issue of successful strategy delivery,” says STC Group CEO, Dr. Khaled Biyari. He added: “For STC, this capability is core to capturing emerging opportunities in the MENA while remaining a leader in ICT and managing overall challenges over the coming years.”

A report from a global multi-sector survey of 500 senior executives conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and commissioned by the Brightline Initiative found that nearly 90% of global survey respondents admit they fail to achieve all their strategic goals because they don’t implement well, and more than half (53 percent) agree that inadequate delivery capability puts them at a competitive disadvantage.[1]

Brightline executive director Ricardo Vargas says, “The Brightline Initiative welcomes STC to our growing ranks as we help organizations bridge the strategy implementation gap in an era of disruption and social and economic challenges. It is important to highlight that strategies are just passive plans on a piece of paper unless organizations find ways to impact employee behaviors and instill new ways of working together.”

New data from University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) on the safety and tolerability of rapid infusion of CT-P10 were presented this weekend at the 59th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting. The results showed that rapid infusion of CT-P10 was well-tolerated across all patient groups and patients could be safely switched from reference rituximab to CT-P10 without reverting to slower infusion rates1. The independent study examined the infusion-related reactions (IRRs) in three different patient groups: rituximab naive, those switching directly from reference rituximab to CT-P10, and those that received their last dose of reference rituximab at least 6 months prior to the study.1 The administration of rituximab is associated with IRRs which occur most frequently during the first infusion. To reduce the risk of IRRs, it is the man
